Graduate - Maine Connections Academy
Serena is a recent graduate of Maine Connections Academy (MCA). While attending MCA, she was able to balance various extracurricular activities with her schoolwork. Serena shares her story below:
“Thanks to MCA, all of my college preparation has been smooth and fun! I feel that I was able to relax and enjoy my last year of high school before starting a new adventure. The worst part about leaving MCA is that I had to say goodbye to the awesome teachers who guided me through my virtual school journey. They were my favorite part about MCA, not because they care about the school looking good, but because they care about your thoughts, feelings, and opinions.
Studying at MCA meant that I could pursue my passion in music, hold a part-time job, and maintain an active and busy lifestyle. Most people equate schooling at home with being unsocialized, but MCA offers students many opportunities to interact with peers and make friends. With the flexibility I was given, I was also able to take a class at a local private academy, where I socialized with other students.”
